Opinion: Innovate for kids

A little-known law, Act 601 of 2013, allows flexibility to exist in our schools in Arkansas. Sen. Joyce Elliott, an educator herself, wrote this law to help schools look at innovative ways to design their educational systems. That flexibility is something our state needs to help our failing schools. This law helps address the status quo and gives schools an opportunity to look at new hiring practices, curriculum models and teaching styles to redesign a school for today's global education.
